COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, it’s an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. It’s the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Decent enogh ipa. Have had many times but picked up a loan bottle in vt to rate. Hazy gold pour with 2 fingers head. Pine and citrus aroma. Pine and citrus... Namely orange peel. Not overly bitter but still fruity. Cracker malt. Medium body. Wuld probably be better fresh from the brewery.

Transfer from BA review on 12-29-12- Poured from growler into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy golden-yellow color with a two finger white head. The head has a nice level of retention fading slowly over time to leave a rather nice level of lacing. Smell – The nose of the beer is a mix a lighter bready and malty smell with a moderate amount of citrus hop. The citrus hop is mainly a mix of grapefruit and a small amount of orange and is mixed with a lighter pine and floral hop smell. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet and malty base mixed with a lighter citrus hop. The sweet flavors are mainly of orange and some other lighter fruits with the hop flavor being initially of a grapefruit taste. As the taste advances further some pine hop flavors come to the tongue with the sweet fading a little. This mix of flavors take the taste to its end ,where they are joined by more grapefruit and a light floral hop flavor. With this is an increase in the orange flavor which in the end produced a rather bitter sweet flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little bit on the creamier side with a carbonation level that was average. The creamy body was quite nice for accentuating the hop flavors and allowing them to linger on the tongue, while the carbonation level made it still refreshing and quite drinkable. Overall – A nice more citrus hop variety of IPA. It has a decent level of sweeter malts to balance out the bitter citrus hop. While not the greatest or most robust, it was a nice easy drinking brew.

Light amber pour, thin white head. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is mild. It has some hoppy charecteristics to it, still very mild. A bit fruity, kind of interesting.

chinchill (1811) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
dated bottle (plenty fresh); poured in standard ping glass. A - Nice dark, yellowish golden tone; slightly cloudy. 1 finger of white head was soon reduced to a nice, and long-lasting, lacy top coat. S - I could smell this one even before I put my nose to it. Strong but certainly not overpowering: Hops + orange/tangerine. Citrus aromas were more masked by hops after the beer sat for a couple of minutes. T - sweet toned citrus hops with piney hop finish. Crisp and refreshing, yet smooth and warming. Plenty bitter [IBU = 70} but balanced with some sweetness. Yum M - fuller than expected One of the best I’ve had from Magic Hat. I hope this gets put in the regular roster. (from 10/2010 notes)

The aroma is unique, lemon, biscuit, citrus hops. The flavor is lemon peel, solvent, some skunk, some bread. The finish is sweet, citrus. Medium in body, slightly hick. Odd beer, but interstinging, and enjoyable.

pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head leaving lots of lacing. you see some sediment floating around but i shook the bottle at end of pour. the aroma is mostly floral hops and some citrus juices. the taste is citrusy up front with some hop bitterness in it as well. worth a try for ipa lovers.

Good head, nice lacing, golden amber. Phenolic odor. Smells like a band-aid. That?s what phenolic means, my neighbor just told me. Doesn?t taste phenolic though. Tastes weak.
